David Lindsay

David Lindsay comes to his subject from an unabashedly eclectic background. The author of several non-fiction books on inventors and numerous articles and essays, he co-founded the legendary musical group They Might Be Giants and the avant-garde klezmer band The Klezmatics, for whom he wrote the lyrics for “Man in a Hat.” He has collaborated with the visionary saxophonist Ornette Coleman and the innovative conductor Butch Morris, and contributed to the object-oriented ontology journal Thinking Nature. Lindsay lives in upstate New York with his wife and two sons, pursuing philosophy as the culmination of his many lifelong interests.
